Proved Reserves Data Year Ended December 31, 2014

As of December 31, 2014, Denbury’s proved reserves were 438 million barrels of oil equivalent (“MMBOE”), consisting of 362 million barrels of crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids (together, “liquids”), and 76 MMBOE (or 452 billion cubic feet) of natural gas. Reserves were 83% liquids and 77% proved developed, and 49% of such reserves were attributable to Denbury’s CO2 EOR operations. Total tertiary reserves at December 31, 2014 were 215 MMBOE and total non-tertiary reserves were 223 MMBOE.

The reserves were prepared in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Codification Topic 932, Extractive Industries – Oil and Gas, using the arithmetic average of the first-day-of-the-month NYMEX commodity price for each month during 2014. These prices were $94.99 per Bbl for crude oil and $4.30 per MMBtu for natural gas, both of which were adjusted for market differentials by field.

Production Data Year Ended December 31, 2014

Denbury’s 2014 production totaled approximately 70,600 barrels of oil per day (“Bbls/d”) and 23 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Oil production included 41,079 Bbls/d from tertiary properties and 29,527 Bbls/d from non-tertiary properties.

G4 Category: Environmental
Emissions G4-EN15 Direct Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions (Scope 1) See Details

See information and charts below

We report GHG emissions in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”) Green House Gas Reporting Program (“GHGRP”). We report under the following subparts and in accordance with the following criteria:

Subpart PP – Suppliers of CO2

Subpart PP was finalized by the EPA in October 2009 and has undergone subsequent revisions since it was published. We submitted our first Subpart PP report in September 2011 for the reporting year 2010. Under this subpart, we are required to annually report the amount of CO2 supplied from our CO2 production fields and the amount delivered to various industrial customers, including our enhanced oil recovery ("EOR") operations.

Subpart UU – Injection of CO2

Subpart UU of the GHGRP was finalized by the EPA in 2011 and the first reports were due in September 2012. Subpart UU requires reporting for a well or group of wells that inject CO2 into the subsurface. This includes Underground Injection Control (UIC) Class II wells in which CO2 is injected for the purposes of EOR. This subpart does not include UIC Class VI wells into which CO2 is injected for the purpose of permanent geologic sequestration. Denbury currently does not operate any Class VI injection wells.

The amount of CO2 reported under this subpart does not include the amount of post-separation CO2 recycled at the central oil production facility and re-injected via CO2 injection wells. We reported the CO2 injection amounts under this subpart for 14 EOR fields in our Gulf Coast operating region in 2011 and 2012. Two additional fields were reported in 2013 which are located in Montana (Bell Creek) and Wyoming (Grieve). We are also involved in a pilot project funded by the Department of Energy where we receive CO2 from Alabama Power’s Barry Power Plant and the CO2 is injected nearby in our Citronelle field. We have been reporting CO2 injected under this program since 2011.

Subpart W – Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems

The EPA finalized Subpart W of the GHGRP in 2011. This subpart has been through several revisions since it was first published. The first annual report under this subpart was due in September 2012 for the reporting year 2011. The EPA has included 8 industry segments under this subpart. Our oil production fields fall under the “Onshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production” industry segment and our Riley Ridge facility falls under the “Onshore Natural Gas Processing” industry segment.

Under this subpart, the EPA requires operators to report emissions under each geological basin in which they operate. These basin boundaries have been identified on the Geologic Provinces Code Map published by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. Currently, our operations fall under three geologic basins in the Gulf Coast region and three basins in the Rocky Mountain region. Denbury has been reporting under this subpart since 2011 for basins exceeding the reporting thresholds.

Under Subpart W, the EPA requires operators to report CO2, CH4 (methane) and N2O (nitrous oxide) emissions from various sources and processes listed under the subpart. These GHG emissions are converted to CO2 equivalent ("CO2e") emissions by using the respective Global Warming Potentials ("GWPs") for each pollutant. The GWPs published by the EPA in 2013 are listed in the table below.

Greenhouse Gases GWPs
CO2 1
CH4 25
N2O 298

The following are Denbury’s emissions for 2014 and 2013 presented in metric tons (tonnes). These emissions coincide with emissions calculations using EPA’s GHG Subpart W reporting requirements and applicability as described above. Please note that 2013 data was collected using Best Available Monitoring Methods in accordance with EPA guidelines. In 2014, more precise data collection methods were employed and provided a more accurate estimate of GHG emissions.

Our operations do not generate HFCs, PFCs or SF6 emissions and, therefore, we do not report them under EPA’s GHG Subpart W. GWPs for 2014 and 2013 were used to calculate CO2e.

Significant spill disclosure:

Delhi Incident:  In June 2013, a release of well fluids, consisting of a mixture of carbon dioxide, saltwater, natural gas and oil, was discovered (and reported) within an area of the Denbury-operated Delhi Field located in northern Louisiana.  Denbury immediately took remedial action to stop the release and contain and recover well fluids in the affected area.  We completed our remediation efforts with respect to such release during the fourth quarter of 2013; however, we continue to monitor the impacted area to confirm the effectiveness of the remediation efforts.
